How can I correct an old person's bad advice without offending him/her?
First, define, " an old person"
Secondly, determine if their general advice is poor or simply outdated...........
some things do indeed change with time.........
Lastly, either learn and grow or go on and grow.
Kindness, fairness, hard work are never outdated...........only the examples of either change. First, you must know this......
Normally I will add suggestion to the advice by saying that if it is handle this way, it will be better or saying his idea will work better if it is done this way.
One must give respect to the elderly but not to the extend of doing the wrong thing on a bad advice. When advice is wrong, it must be corrected in a better manner.
